Camilla Lackberg has been celebrated as Sweden’s answer to Agatha Christie, which is a huge compliment for her since was the first book she ever read, at the age of seven. Camilla talks to BookD about Sweden’s darker underbelly over the pristine preconceptions of her homeland. Sweden’s more stirring, atmospheric, and creepy Scandinavian landscape gives a great setting for books where bad things can happen. With this in mind, Camilla also discusses the phenomenon that is Swedish Crime and why leaving her job and becoming a full-time author was something she had to pursue in order to keep her own sanity afloat during those dark, cold days and nights!
